Elliott County Schools

Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract

This project was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that included seven buildings and over 210,000 square feet in the Elliott County School district. The project was 100% funded through energy and operational savings through an energy revenue bond sale administered by Ross Sinclaire and Associates. Additionally, CMTA was able to secure a $500,000 grant for Elliott County from Kentucky Utilities. Construction for this project all took place over one summer and was completed in 3 months. 

  • Existing coal fired boiler was replaced with a new hybrid geothermal system at Elliot County High School 
  • New water to water geothermal central plant at Elliott County High School 
  • New lighting system for Elliott County High School 
  • Water Efficiency Savings at Elliott County High School 
  • New Automation System at Elliott County High School 
  • New Automation and Lighting retrofits at Isonville Elementary School 
  • Project resulted in all schools in the district achieving Energy Star status

What does this data mean?
Baseline: The annual energy consumption before the project
Guaranteed: CMTA's guaranteed energy use for the client post-project
Actual: The measured energy use after the project

The manner in which CMTA was able to replace the majority of the lighting in our schools across the district, as well as the installation of a geothermal system replacing an outdated coal fire boiler at the High School, has significantly reduced our utility costs.
